Who we are

SAUK is the only UK wide patient support organisation for people with scoliosis and their families.

Why we do it

Our aim is to provide advice, support, and information to people affected by scoliosis and their families and raise awareness of scoliosis among health professionals and the general public.

What we do

We do this so that we can be there for people with scoliosis and those close to them, help to reduce feelings of isolation, poor body image, inadequate care, needless pain, worry, fear and lack of information.

Become a member
Having scoliosis can sometimes be a lonely experience. Our membership scheme allows people with scoliosis to connect with each other.
